Publication of James Bond Unmasked by Bill Desowitz. The book is released by Spies Publishing in America.

James Bond is the most powerful and enduring cultural hero of our time and the longest-running franchise in movie history. In James Bond Unmasked, veteran film journalist Bill Desowitz chronicles the 50-year evolution of Ian Fleming's iconic superspy on the big screen, from the Cold War of the sixties to the current post-9/11 era. This insightful book comes direct from the source, as Desowitz interviews all six Bond actors: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.

"An elegant orgy of all things Bond. As essential, cool, and satisfying as one of Mr. Bond's martinis." -William Joyce, director of the Oscar(R)-winning animated short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (2011).
